Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This falls provides a much-visited, historically significant, and especially picturesque landmark south of Rochester.

As you visit the falls, note the carefully preserved buildings in the area. The large brick building with the bell tower is the Village Hall, reconstructed in 1886 after an 1885 fire destroyed the original structure. A former livery stable now serves as the Honeoye Falls-Mendon Historical Society Museum, and the bright red building west of the falls stands on the site of Norton’s first sawmill—and was itself a sawmill until 1885."

"There is a viewing platform at the southwest corner of the town hall building, near the parking area. From it, you look at the crest of the falls. Across Honeoye Creek sits a red building on a stone foundation right at water’s edge. This was the “red sawmill” which burned in the great fire of 1885. The building you see was built to replace it and is currently a private residence. Upstream, to the right you can see a concrete abutment in the creek. This is all that remains of an old rail line. A train first steamed across a covered bridge at this location in 1853. The bridge was replaced with an iron structure in 1893." Read more
